    Finds from Friday and today. Friday was a short, very short cold hunt at a large city park. Today's hunt was about 3 hours behind an elementary school in a town next door. The "Jesus First" pin was found down 7" behind the school. As you can see from the picture, the pin is very small. Amazingly, I was running the Sport only on a sensitivity setting of 4 and this hit very loud and solid. The Sport is very sensitive to small targets. Also found the AAA pin behind the school. The zippers were also found fairly deep. They rang up solid in the 40s as a "miscellaneous" target. A lot of clad and even more fun. Really loving the Sport. Three of the nickels were early 1960's, too bad the quarters and dimes weren't:mad: IMG_0374.JPG IMG_0377.jpg IMG_0378.jpg

    Actually with the temps in the 40's, it is quite comfortable for hunting. The ground is perfect right now; we have had some rain but not so much as to make it really muddy. Looking at the extended forecast, I should have 2-3 more weeks of decent temperatures. Once into December though, all bets are off:(.

    So what you're telling me is that I might as well not pack my detector for a Christmas visit. :(

    It's Ohio, you never know:LOL:. As mild as our winter was last year, there were some windows of opportunity through December but January put a stop to it. Bring a Santa Claus hat along with your detecting gear!:LOL: Oh, and bring some warm clothes just in case. Better yet, just bring some of that warm air from the southwest with you.:D
